Its time to begin our Book Talk about Purple Cow. If you haven’t already, please get your copy of this book (available on Audible, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc.) so you can follow along with the discussion.
Let’s start with some Ps.
Purpose: The purpose of this Blog-style Book Talk is to reap the benefits of a group discussion about the concepts and content of Purple Cow without having to meet face-to-face. We are all handmade small-business owners who see extreme value in standing out among not only competitors but the slew of information and products available on the internet.
Processes: Basically, I’ll post some questions that get some chatter going through Commenting. When a particular comment is hot and warrants its own post, I’ll create an original post so those comments can be streamlined and focused. I encourage you to look through all the posts and comments so that you can read what your friends are saying and ask questions, agree, respectfully disagree with further information, or add to the discussion. If you want to speak to someone directly, reply to their comment or use @username in your comment.
If you have a question or want to start a discussion that doesn’t necessarily go along with the particular section of the book or post that is current, please visit the “Purple Cow: Open Forum” section under “Purple Cow by Seth Godin.” This is a place where anything and everything can be discussed about our Book Talk experience with Purple Cow (except for bad-mouthing the moderator, which is HIGHLY discouraged!).
Positivity: It goes without saying that positive talk breeds positive thinking and vice versa. We are in this Book Talk together to help one another not only understand how Purple Cow can help our businesses, but to listen to one another about what Godin’s message does for our entrepreneurial experience. Comments that hinder our growth will be removed from the board without permission-asking or pleading to edit. Ain’t nobody got time for that!
If you have any suggestions or see something along the way that could work better for our group, please email me, Ashley, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our first post will discuss Not Enough Ps (pg. 1) through The Law of Large Numbers (pg. 51). Discussion topics will be posted before February 24th. For now, let’s all introduce ourselves by commenting to this post. Tell us who you are and what you do (the key to opening any good business pitch).
